➦Oh my god, what just happened?
➦This book started out playful and flirty like it usually does when boy meets girl in these type of books. The author also gives glimpses into main hero’s troubled past and it helped me connect with his character. What I truly did NOT expect was that I would be bawling my eyes out right at about 70% mark. And I was a mess, I even cried during acknowledgements reading about the rescue dog Karina Halle adopted and his struggle to come out of his shell.
➦Everything in this book felt very real, it felt like reading a story that actually happened! Lachlan and Kayla admit their love for each other and there isn’t any bs you so often see where two adults tip toe around each other for half the book wondering if they should say it first and “omg what will happen if they don’t say it back?” They are upfront with each other and it felt very believable. They had a lot of obstacles to overcome and I truly worried about what the outcome would be.
➦The book is rather long and has a slow build-up, but I did not mind it because it was so worth it in the end.
